Passing selected values from gridview to another page

I have 2 pages...

Page 1 has a gridview on it which lists an item.

If you click the "select" button for said item, it opens a formview below it with all the detail information.

I want to add another colum in the gridview that has a button in it so that when you click that button it sends the selectedvalue of the gridview to a second page. I want to use that value to filter my sqldatasource on page2.

I can not figure out how to send the selected value of page 1 to page 2.

you can add a template button with some code like this
OnRowCommand="GridviewUnAssigned_OnRowCommand"

    protected void GridviewUnAssigned_OnRowCommand(Object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.CommandName == "status")
        {
            // Convert the row index stored in the CommandArgument
            // property to an Integer.
            int index = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument);

            // Retrieve the row that contains the button clicked
            // by the user from the Rows collection.
            GridViewRow row = this.GridViewUnassigned.Rows[index];

            //convert the id data in cell 1 to int
            int id  = Convert.ToInt32(row.Cells[0].Text);
            Session["appraisalfileid"] = id;
            Server.Transfer("page2.aspx");
        }
    }


                    <asp:GridView ID="GridViewUnassigned" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" Font-Size="X-Small"
                        Height="80px" OnRowCommand="GridviewUnAssigned_OnRowCommand" Width="786px" Caption="Unassigned">
                        <Columns>
                            <asp:BoundField DataField="id" HeaderText="ID">
                                <ItemStyle Width="25px" HorizontalAlign="Left" />
                                <HeaderStyle BackColor="Silver" BorderColor="Silver" Width="25px" HorizontalAlign="Left" />
                            </asp:BoundField>
                            <asp:ButtonField DataTextField="status" HeaderText="Status" CommandName="status" Text="go to detail">
                                <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Left" Width="120px" />
                                <HeaderStyle BackColor="Silver" BorderColor="Silver" HorizontalAlign="Left" Width="120px" />
                            </asp:ButtonField>
                        </Columns>
                    </asp:GridView>

this is 2 basic ways to do it - transfer through session
            Session["appid"] = id;
            Server.Transfer("page2.aspx");
on page 2 - int x = (int)Session["appraisalfileid"]

or  Server.Transfer("page2.aspx?id= " +  id.ToString());
then in page 2  string x = Request.QueryString["id"].ToString();

I am not sure the issue here, but the ASP Tag <asp:ButtonField> is not a known element. I am using ASP.net 2.0. If you are using 1.0 I am wondering if it was removed??

Here is my gridview, you can see I have a template field with a button on it that I have assigned an on-click event to. When this fires i set a session variable = to the selectedvalue of the gridview, problem is that if the user doesnt first make a selection, then the selectedvalue of gridview1 = nothing.

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" HorizontalAlign="center" Width="500px" EmptyDataRowStyle-BorderStyle="None" EmptyDataRowStyle-BorderWidth="0" DataKeyNames="KEYID">
  <Columns>
    <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" />
    <asp:BoundField DataField="KEYID" HeaderText="Listing #" InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="KEYID" />
    <asp:BoundField DataField="txtAddress" HeaderText="Address" SortExpression="txtAddress" />
    <asp:BoundField DataField="isActive" HeaderText="Active" SortExpression="isActive" />
    <asp:TemplateField>
      <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Upload Pictures" OnClick="Button2_Click" />
      </ItemTemplate>
    </asp:TemplateField>
  </Columns>
  <RowStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />
  <EmptyDataRowStyle BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="0px" />
</asp:GridView>

Protected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        Session("KEYID") = GridView1.Selectedvalue
        Server.Transfer("uploadpictures.aspx")

    End Sub

i think if this can be converted to VB it will work for me..

OnRowCommand="GridviewUnAssigned_OnRowCommand"

    protected void GridviewUnAssigned_OnRowCommand(Object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.CommandName == "status")
        {
            // Convert the row index stored in the CommandArgument
            // property to an Integer.
            int index = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument);

            // Retrieve the row that contains the button clicked
            // by the user from the Rows collection.
            GridViewRow row = this.GridViewUnassigned.Rows[index];

            //convert the id data in cell 1 to int
            int id  = Convert.ToInt32(row.Cells[0].Text);
            Session["appraisalfileid"] = id;
            Server.Transfer("page2.aspx");
        }
    }

Going through this I have converted it to VB myself, though I am getting an error which doesnt make sense, since the code is basically copied from the Microsoft site itself http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.rowcommand.aspx

"Input string was not in a correct format."

that happens on this line ..

Dim myindex As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument)

this is the whole sub routine..

Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewCommandEventArgs)

        If e.CommandName = "Upload" Then

            'Convert the row index stored in the CommandArgument
            'property to an Integer.
            Dim myindex As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument)

            'Retrieve the row that contains the button clicked
            'by the user from the Rows collection.
            Dim row As GridViewRow = GridView1.Rows(myindex)

            'convert the id data in cell 1 to int
            Dim id As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(row.Cells(2).Text)
            Session("KEYID") = id
            Server.Transfer("page2.aspx")
        End If
    End Sub

it seems that there is no value being passed into CommandArgument. looking at the debugger, it shows "0"

            'Convert the row index stored in the CommandArgument
            'property to an Integer.
            Dim myindex As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument)

            'Retrieve the row that contains the button clicked

            Dim row As GridViewRow = GridView1.Rows(myindex)

            'convert the id data in cell 1 to int
            Dim id As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(row.Cells(1).Text)
            Session("KEYID") = id
